So that's another year finished. I don't know why but the older I get the faster the year just shoots by. I use to wish when I was smaller that time would hurry up; now I wish it would just slow down a bit. I want to play all these great games, especially a year like this which has had some many good games that I think I spent hundreds trying to buy them all, and still didn't manage to get all I want.
If you remember I was doing a challenge to see if I could finish off 50 games before the year came to an end and well I guess I kind of did and didn't make it in some sense. I know I certainly should have spent more time on single games. I just couldn't help it though when I got a brand new game in the post that was suppose to be awesome. Don't worry though; Assassin's Creed didn't spend long in my 360, god I nearly fall asleep playing that game. It likes to repeat over and over again, kind of like when an RPG changes the colour of the baddies to make them "different". Assassin's Creed just changes the people you are suppose to kill, but does the same stuff following up to that. Ah well, maybe the sequel will learn from that mistake.
So the games I finished with recently are:
Jackass: The Game (Didn't buy it, was a review copy)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Bone: Out from Boneville
Tekken: Dark Resurrection/Online (Finished it with all characters!)
So that makes 37 games finished for the year. That's pretty far off really. I needed to finish off 13 more to make the 50 mark. I was just sitting here thinking about something. What if I added the games that I finished on the 360, but didn't get 700 or more achievement points, would that make up to 50? So I sat down and through about all the 360 games I'd done. This is what I came up with.
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (Wasn't half bad in co-op!)
Earth Defense Force 2017
Virtua Tennis 3
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition
Rainbow Six: Vegas
So yep, the final count is 47 games. I've just missed the target by three games! Oh so close! To be honest through I think I've learnt something about myself from this little challenge, that I have a very bad habit of buying too many games and playing between them all, rather than focusing at one of a time. I never use to be like that, I guess that is what money does to you when you've got it in front of you to buy all the games you want.
I guess these leads to my New Year Revolution, which is to try and focus on a smaller amount of games at once. It be interesting to see how many I actually complete in 2008 when I try to stick to this. There's not going to be a challenge this year, but I'm still going to match it up to 2007 and see if the results are a lot different or not.
Well have a good 2008 and remember to play lots of games! Oh and if you want to know what my top five games of 2007 were then here they are.
Super Mario Galaxy
Call of Duty 4
Game On! :D
